The DJMAX Technika 2: Crew Race wiki last edited by Marino on 09/12/13 12:02PM View full history

Overview

DJ Max Technika 2 is the latest sequel in Pentavision's long-running DJ Max series, and the second to be released in arcades. As with its predecesor, DJ Max Technika, Technika 2 requires players to use a touchscreen-based interface to touch, hold, and drag notes with the proper timing to successfully play songs.

The game is currently in location testing in South Korea, with a release expected sometime in 2010.

New Features & Changes

Note that the information in the list is subject to change as the game is not yet released.

  • A new type of note is introduced. It's a purple hold note played similar to the regular purple repeat notes and blue hold notes.
  • MAX judgement is now divided into "rainbow" MAX and "bronze" MAX, with the former being akin to a flashing great from Beatmania IIDX.
  • A "FEVER" button has replaced the "BGM BOOST" button during song play. Touching this button extends the timing window, making the game temporarily easier and changes all MAX's into "rainbow" MAX's.
  • "Crew Race" mode has been added, which is a user created challenge mode, where you play against a players choice of 3 songs and their score.
  • "Duo Mixing" mode has been added, which splits the screen in half and is intended for play by two players for two stages.
  • Lite Mode from Technika is now called Star Mixing, and is pretty much the same, except for the fact that you can turn the guide hands on/off and there is no FEVER.
  • Pop Mixing mode now has a random select for each stage.
  • You can now change the difficulty of a song in Pop Mixing.
  • Technical Mode from Technika is replaced by Club Mixing. You can either choose a set of 4 songs like in the original, or you have the choice of playing a nonstop mix/version of a song instead.
  • Song difficulties are now named similarly to the rest of the DJ Max series (NM/HD/MX).
  • Some songs that were in the original Technika have had their difficulty rating adjusted.
  • The scoring system has been reworked to score each song out of 300000. It is calculated by dividing 290000 by the number of notes in a song, while 10000 is obtained through a combo bonus.
